I’m motivated to begin a weekly roundup because there were at least
four five cool scientific papers this week that relied on citizen science. I’m absolutely sure that there were more that did not come across my desk. Help me fill in the blanks by sending links of more papers reporting the results of research that relied on citizen science. Send to me via twitter @CoopSciScoop or put in the comments below.
Later this month, I’ll discuss one or more of these papers. Comment below on which are of particular interest to you! moths, koalas, lake water, butterflies, and the list will grow.
New findings brought to you by citizen science:
